[Webinar] Winning at “Duty Free”: Using Behavioral Economics Levers To Influence the Travel Retail Shopper

Learn how to become more successful in the travel retail channel.

The Duty Free channel is a rapidly growing and highly profitable channel. This is fueled by a growing segment of young, wealthy global travelers.  While it represents an enormous opportunity for luxury marketers across many categories (beauty, fragrance, spirits, fashion, chocolate, etc.), competition is fierce from global brands and emerging local brands.

In this free webinar, PRS IN VIVO shares insights gathered from observation and in-depth interviews with travel retail shoppers, conducted across many global airports (London, Dubai, Shanghai, Seoul, Singapore among others).  

Scott Young (Global CEO, PRS IN VIVO) and Yeeli Lee (Vice President and Managing Director, PRS IN VIVO) speak to:  

  • The incoming shopper mindset and key differences by region and gender
  • The shopping experience at Duty Free and learning uncovered by eye-tracking of shopper journeys
  • Common mistakes made by many luxury retailers and opportunities to improve conversion at duty free

In addition, they discuss why behavioral economics holds the key to truly understanding travel retail and driving fundamental changes in shopping behavior.
